<p>As I was getting settled into a busy Monday morning or work I was informed of a post by Chris Morlock contact and references <a href=httpwwwpdgacomplayer stats60004>Chris Morlock on the PDGA<a> <a href=httpwwwdiscgolfscenecomprofile18699>Chris Morlock on DiscGolfScene<a> <a href=httpswwwfacebookcomchrismorlock980>Chris Morlock on Facebook<a> on Facebook of all places where I am not personally connected to him therefore cannot see or respond to his inquiries regarding transparency and questions regarding the Dušan<em> <em>Nedelko Foundation Which we have been running since my brothers untimely passing <p> <p>I was a taken off guard by the comment I could see since we have <a href=httpdusansfoundationorg>httpdusansfoundationorg<a> and I am always extremely easy to contact directly It therefore does confuse me to see comments made to which I cannot respond to personally or on behalf of the Foundation <p> <p>As this is my personal blog I think it is most appropriate to post my email response which I sent directly to MrMorlock This hopefully ensures complete transparency if you have any comments or questions please do not hesitate to contact me at <a href=mailtodandannedelkocom>dandannedelkocom<a><p> <p>Thanks to everyone who has so generously supported our efforts to both continue my brothers efforts and to enable our youth through outdoor activity and education I would also add that it is interesting to see such behaviour in response to a genuine effort on the part of many people to support our youth<p> <p>Best<p> <p>Dan Nedelko<p> <p
